Configuration entities that do not benefit from versioning

The details for some configuration entities are almost entirely location-specific. As such, these entities do not benefit from versioning because very little information can be shared among locations. This is the case for Printers and Receipt Setup. For this type of configuration entity, there is no reason to create a master version with location-specific versions based off the master. Instead, you can add an individual configuration entity for each location and set its Target and Owner fields to that location.

For more information on printer set up, see Prep stations and printers for enterprises.

Receipt Setup is similar to Tax Rates in that the Toast platform automatically creates a receipt set up for each location in your enterprise. However, unlike tax rates, Toast support recommends that you use these auto-created entities to configure receipt setup for each of your locations.
